With the planned 2019 Nigeria general elections in view, God is in His own wisdom, steadily working out modalities that will precipitate speedy Biafra referendum. Many people are yet trying to grapple with the unfolding scenarios to their own bewilderment. The political hurricane currently blowing across Nigeria is however sharply sifting the genuine seeds of Biafra redemption and agents of oppression. These sons of perdition are shamelessly masquerading as sympathizers of the struggle for political independence of the ancient nation of Biafra. It is important to state here to the understanding of slow learners of history, that the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), two aged Fulani Islamic fundamentalist bigots, power drunken, desperate political sadists, are respectively God’s designs to hasten the conduction of the much anticipated Biafra referendum. The brazen desperation to grasp power by these two “Fulani Old Horses”, will certainly bring into accomplishment this project as Atiku Abubakar will not give in to vagaries of political compromise which the gubernatorial aspirants in Anambra State did for Governor Willie Obiano who was declared winner in the State’s election of November, 2017. In the said election, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) amongst others, which was massively boycotted, caused fear amongst Anambra State politicians, of the much touted declaration of “state of emergency” in the event of constitutional crises.
What then would be of utmost importance to the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, the array of Biafra media teams, IPOB field evangelists and battalions of other freedom-hungry Biafrans, centres not on who emerges as the presidential flagbearers of the political parties standing in for the Nigerian general elections of 2019, but the resources required to harness the accomplishment of the goal of convincing Biafrans to clinically boycott the 2019 general elections within the entire Biafraland, particularly. That decision remains irrevocable even if Mazi Nnamdi Kanu himself or Mazi Uche Mefor, his deputy surfaces with converse messages as flagbearers or running mates on the platform of any of these political parties in Nigeria. The IPOB leadership should resiliently resist such a nomenclature and concentrate undeterred on employing the total usage of all available human, capital and intellectual resources at her disposal to ensure that Biafrans fully comprehend the import of successful and damning boycott of the Nigerian organised 2019 general elections.
This will definitely create unprecedented political hostilities that will culminate into a global demand for Biafra referendum. Political predators are well aware of this fact and that informs the reason why they are presently expending huge amounts of ill-gotten money and creating structures to hoodwink gullible Biafrans into participating in the elections with their votes, thereby giving the impression to the world that elections also took place in Biafraland. As these political merchants therefore indulge in desperate campaigns for successful 2019 elections, all IPOB departments ranging from the Highest Command, Directorate of State, Field Coordinators/Campaigners and vibrant Media Outlets suggestively and of necessity, should “up the game” and engage in sleepless activities of cohesion as the campaign for the total boycott of the upcoming 2019 Nigerian organised general elections. This most assuredly will provoke Biafra referendum. The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, may not have crude oil money to splash on people in the rural/urban communities as the politicians do, but we have inexhaustible reservoir of unflinching loyalty and support of the people of Biafra cum volunteer human resources to get all the necessary assignments regarding the election boycott, exceptionally accomplished. Like the Anambra State gubernatorial election boycott by Biafrans, underneath are some glaring realities that quelled the envisaged constitutional crises that would have taken place in the State following the boycotted guber election.
Three good weeks before the election date which Biafrans massively boycotted, all the governorship aspirants in Anambra State in the persons of Tony Nwoye (APC), Oseloka Obaze (PDP), Willie Obiano (APGA), Yul Edochie (SDP) amongst others, experienced the heat of IPOB undeterred campaign for a boycott of that election. The aspirants met in Anambra State Government House situated in Awka and unanimously accepted that the incumbent being Governor Willie Obiano of APGA, should be declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), whether the people really voted on that 18th November 2017 election or not.
All these aspirants established acceptable compromise before the election which stated that none of them would challenge the INEC announced result in the tribunal. They all agreed to have the incumbent governor publicly declared as the winner of the election following the abysmal boycott recorded as a result of IPOB campaign of non-participation. The campaign had the potency of eliciting damnable constitutional crises in the State. This compromise stance of the gubernatorial candidates was agreed to, three weeks before the election and INEC officials were assured of the protection of their integrity by the aspirants’ decision not to approach any election tribunal to challenge the results.
The advantage presented by the looming IPOB massive 2019 general elections boycott strategy especially as it borders on the presidential candidature of Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar is really pragmatic. The two candidates are desperately power hungry and will never accept a compromise situation for each other like what obtained in Anambra State in 2017. For these two contending Fulani political sadists, it will be gladdening to them to see Nigeria go up in flames than for any of them to repudiate his inordinate ambitions. They will rather create unprecedented constitutional crises that will engulf Nigeria than proffer pre-emptive solutions.
This is the more reason why the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) should aggravate successful election boycott campaigns throughout the entire Biafran territories. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), lacks the capacity to get either Atiku’s or Buhari’s nod to announce fictitious results in Biafraland if Biafrans conscientiously boycott that Presidential election. The IPOB struggle presently should be to get our people convinced to completely boycott the elections. Invariably, the desperation of these Fulanis will heat up the polity thereby, prompting the global community to demand answers to mind boggling questions. Premised on this development, we will be at the vantage position of giving explanations as a people, why the elections were boycotted. Our campaigns for total boycott must not end in the media domain. Our field campaigners have to invade our localities with posters, handbills, billboards, flexes, banners and flyers. They should be handed out and placed at strategic places.
It is also important to make it known here to our people that the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar as the presidential flagbearers for 2019 general elections is divinely orchestrated, mainly to fast track the process of organizing a referendum for Biafrans. It is therefore incumbent upon us as a people, to fully utilize this existing opportunity as the untamed desperation of these two candidates will help in no small measure in accomplishing it. As the politicians will be campaigning for successful elections, family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), should relentlessly match them with corresponding campaigns for massive election boycott and Biafra referendum. We are just few moments away from our destination which is the restoration of the sovereign nation of Biafra. We must therefore not trifle with the opportunity so provided to us by God. Nothing and absolutely nothing must be allowed to stand between us and our referendum.
